The papers outlining secret tactics were meant to be slipped under South African cricketer Dale Steyn's hotel room door on the eve of a game against New Zealand.

The South African team acknowledged that papers listing apparent weaknesses of New Zealand's batsmen were put in the wrong room.

Although they don't contain any startling insights, the tactics — titled "Plan / Strategy Handouts" — outline team management's suggestions on how Steyn and his fellow fast bowlers could get the New Zealanders out in Wednesday's game.
